The City of Charlotte is hosting an Informational Open House this Thursday, July 18 to inform community members about the City’s plan to rezone parcels along the Blue Line light rail corridor to one of the new TOD zoning districts.
The parcel rezonings, which will begin this fall, will formally remap hundreds of individual properties along the LYNX light rail corridor to one of the four new TOD districts Council adopted in April:
TOD-UC Transit Urban Center
TOD-NC Transit Neighborhood Center
TOD-CC Transit Community Center
On June 30th, all districts zoned under one of the previous conventional TOD districts were automatically rezoned to the medium-density TOD-CC, but the remapping process will reassign many of these parcels to a higher- or lower-density district, depending on its proximity to a transit station, activity center, or existing neighborhood.
You can find out if your property is included in the TOD Alignment Rezoning by using the City’s online map. Simply enter the street address or nearest intersection into the map’s search feature to locate your parcel. If your property is included in the TOD Alignment Rezoning, it will be shown with the color that corresponds to the TOD zoning district for which it is recommended. If your parcel does not have a color, it will not be rezoned as part of this initiative.
Parcels with a previously approved URBAN conditional zoning will NOT be rezoned in the mapping process.
This Thursday’s community meeting will be held in the Fellowship Hall on the first floor of the Pritchard Building, Pritchard Memorial Baptist Church, 1117 South Boulevard. Drop-in times are 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. Presentations are scheduled for 11:15 a.m., 12:15 p.m., 4:15 p.m., 5:15 p.m., and 6:15 p.m.
Free parking is available in the parking garage behind the church at Caldwell and Templeton. The church is also a short walk from the Carson Boulevard LYNX station.
